- Ireland - Try: Lyons Con: Tyrrell
- England - Tries: Wilson Hardy, Keates, Cokayne, Scarratt, Thompson Cons: Scarratt 3 Pen: Scarratt
England Women secured their first Grand Slam since 2012 with a determined 34-7 win over Ireland at Donnybrook.
The Red Roses scored tries through Amy Wilson Hardy, Laura Keates, Amy Cokayne, Emily Scarratt and Lydia Thompson with Scarratt ending the match with a personal haul of 14 points.
Ireland scored a consolation try of their own through hooker Leah Lyons but it was not enough to prevent England's first Six Nations win in Ireland since 2011.
Tight first half
The Red Roses took the lead in the 16th minute when Emily Scarratt found Wilson Hardy with a fine looped pass and the Bristol wing dived over for her fifth try of the tournament.
England then survived a sustained spell of pressure from Ireland late on of the first half to go in at the break 5-0 ahead, with Marlie Packer making a try-saving tackle on Sene Naoupu in one of the final plays of the half.
Keates marks her milestone
The Red Roses extended their lead 14 minutes after half-time when the Worcester Valkyries prop dived over to score a try on her 60th international appearance.
Ireland were reduced to 14 players two minutes before the hour when substitute Mairead Coyne made a deliberate knock on, and Scarratt knocked over the resulting penalty to pass 350 international points and move her side 13 points ahead.

Three minutes later Cokayne received a Scarratt offload and raced away to follow up her hat-trick in last weekend's 64-0 win over Scotland with another try.
Grand Slam sealed at hosts of World Cup
Ireland responded when hooker Lyons trundled over in the 64th minute and wing Tyrrell added the extras to take the score to 7-20.
The Red Roses sealed their bonus point four minutes later when Scarratt darted over after fine offloads from Bianca Blackburn and Wilson Hardy and wing Thompson added gloss to the scoreline with a terrific team effort.
The bonus-point victory sealed the Red Roses' Grand Slam and they will return to Ireland in August to defend their World Cup.
'It gives us a springboard now'
England head coach Simon Middleton was delighted with his side's performance but insists his side will now concentrate on getting even better.
“The difference between winning and not winning this match would have been huge," said Middleton.
"It gives us a springboard now and it keeps our winning mentality going. It also gives us confidence that what we’re doing is right. We know we can get better, fitter and stronger.
"That will be our next focus, but to come here to the lions den and beat a side that are going to be hosting the World Cup is massive for us. I’m absolutely thrilled.”
